300$ in x2 55g fresh, and 125g fresh. I love Craigslist and I work in a machine shop, DIY anything and everything I can. I'm cheap but don't think my fish can tell the difference.

I have a 55 with discus so like 500 in just fish, plus setup cost and food for 14 months and now recently setup on my new 36 bowfront. Lol. It's definitely a financial sacrifice.

That it is keep in mind though this is like tank # 15 or 16 all of which have custom hardwood stands some with matching canopies and most have t5 or LEDs so that's where most of the cash went

lol I'm at least 200 dollars in with a 5 gallon and a 10 gallon and 3 bettas... and that's also counting my previous fish over the past 7 years.... xD I took a lot of long breaks though.

Anyway, if you guys think this is bad, try being an equestrian. I've invested at LEAST 20 grand in the past 7 years.

$200.00 and some good craigslist shopping and you'll have a 55 gal and $50.00.

Just sayin.
